Caroline Lucas: UKIP agenda is full-throttled Islamophobia

24 April 2017

Caroline Lucas, the Green Party co-leader, has responded to UKIP's 'integration agenda' [1]. She accused the far-right party of 'full-throttled islamophobia' and pledged to 'stand up to the politics of hate'. 

Caroline Lucas, co-leader of the Green Party, said:

“UKIP’s ‘integration agenda’ is an assault on multiculturalism and an attack on Muslims. It's full-throttled Islamophobia. 

"Now that the referendum has passed Nutall’s party is desperately scrabbling around for relevance and seem to have settled upon attacks on Muslims and fringe far right politics as their new home. In this election the Green Party will be standing up to the politics of hate spewing from UKIP and putting forward a vision for a multicultural, welcoming Britain which we can all be proud of.”
